Gossamer Trio

"Gossamer Trio"
11" x 14"
Acrylic on canvas panel
There were three sheer, papery roses mixed in with some carnations and a tulip when I rescued the bouquet.  I snipped 'em short, added foliage and buds, and a few herbs from my garden then painted the gossamer trio before they wilted.  

The colors were perfect for this background.  I worked it fast and deliberately, adding a retarder to the paint, so it wouldn't dry too quickly.  I especially like the blue flowers and leaves tucked between the three gals.

Thanks for taking a look!
